How To Think Sideways is closing for a year

Last year, I promoted Holly Lisle's How To Think Sideways. And I am doing so again, because Holly is making the best decision for herself, and for the course: she is moving it to a once a year registration as it works best when you go through it with a class. It is currently open until March 5th, 11:59 ET, at which point it will not be available for about a year.

Heard enough, know about Holly and want to buy How To Think Sideways Ultra? Go buy the course; it's listed under "Career Classes".

Why should you buy? One, Holly is offering bonuses. However, I admit that I am late with this promotion due to being absent yesterday; these bonuses may be gone by now as the course has been open eleven hours by now. ETA at twelve hours after opening: according to an email from Holly, we've had five sales. The top three prizes are gone, fine, but the rest remain.

FIRST CONFIRMED SALE: 3 private recorded (so you can keep a copy and don’t have to take notes) half-hour Skype chats with me, where you can ask me your HTTS writing questions, brainstorm a story idea or issues with your WIP, or just chat*, PLUS any 3 workshops of your choice from the Workshops List (link opens in new tab). PLUS BONUSES FOR 4th – 10th and 11th – 25th confirmed sales.

SECOND CONFIRMED SALE: 2 private recorded (so you can keep a copy and don’t have to take notes) half-hour Skype chats with me, where you can ask me your HTTS writing questions, brainstorm a story idea or your WIP, or just chat.* PLUS any 2 workshops of your choice from the Workshops List (link opens in new tab). PLUS BONUSES FOR 4th – 10th and 11th – 25th confirmed sales.

* Chats require free Skype app, internet connection, a computer with a built-in mic or a USB mic, and usually a headset so you can hear me over background noise, or if your speakers aren’t great. Bonuses are non-transferrable.

*** A private 25-attendee webinar

A second set of random draw bonuses will be announced after the doors close on Thursday, HOWEVER THESE BONUSES ONLY APPLY IF THERE ARE OVER 100 BUYERS.

Two, it is true that Holly would like to run the course with everyone going together; that's how she finds the course to be most effective. But that's no obligation; you are able to proceed through this at your own pace. Have a demanding job and can only do one lesson a month? Battle depression and get through a lesson every three months?

It's true that the longer you take, the longer it'll be before you are writing stuff that sells (which is the aim of the course), but the lessons will be there when you are ready, unlike how in high school it didn't matter if you didn't understand algebra, you had to catch up on your own time and move onto the next lesson of trigonometry. Sit down with lesson six and spend two weeks really understanding it if you want; you have that freedom.

Three, as I said last year… I've been dealing with depression myself, so I cannot say "here, look at this book, I accomplished this because of HTTS". But I know that I write a lot better than I used to. Some of my stuff… I'm glad it's no longer available, because even if the ideas were worthwhile, the writing was atrocious.

My writing is a lot better. Some of that is practice, some of that is because I have gone through lessons of HTTS and been able to apply the information within to my writing.

If you're a writer, and one who wants to improve their craft, I strongly recommend taking How To Think Sideways Ultra. The class can be found under "Career Classes". Paypal and credit cards are accepted and you can pay it all at once ($497 USD) or monthly ($77 USD a month for seven months).

I haven't regretted purchasing the course, and it's been several years now since I did; nor have I heard regret from my friends who have also purchased it from Holly. I don't expect anyone else to regret the purchase either. It is totally worth the investment.
